Think about how a prospective employer might find your medical records useful to determine if you're worth hiring.

Do you really want government forcing electronic records on everyone so they can be hacked and sent out over the World Wide Web?

Flying in US used to be a thrill few years ago. However, due to increasing bombing threats of islamic terrorists that enjoy safe heaven under regimes of Pakistan, Afghanistan Iran, Yemen, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and others that are great allies of Obama, the American people need to suffer immensely as their private parts are being searched and even recorded. Nobody will fly if Janet Napolitano will continue humiliating the American people as she gives safe heaven to the Muslims in America and as Obama gives support and financing to the islamic regimes that harbor islamic terrorists of al Qaida, Taliban and Hamas due to his love to islamic terrorists and fighting for their rights.

TSA Now Putting Hands Down Fliers’ Pants -- November 16, 2010
http://www.infowars.com/tsa-now-putting-hands...

The TSA’s invasive new screening measures include officers literally putting their hands down people’s pants if they are wearing baggy clothing in a shocking new elevation of groping procedures that have stoked a nationwide revolt against privacy-busting airport security measures.

Forget John Tyner’s “don’t touch my junk” experience at the hands of TSA goons in San Diego recently, another victim of Big Sis was told by TSA officials that it was now policy to go even further when dealing with people wearing loose pants or shorts.

The level of abuse appears to be getting worse on an almost daily basis. First TSA agents use the back of their hands, then they outright grope you with the front, and now they are being trained to put their hands down traveler’s pants. What’s next? Mandatory bodily probes?

Even as the resistance to airport oppression grows, Big Sis and the TSA are responding by making the pat down procedures more invasive. Napolitano has figuratively said to the American people ‘let them eat cake’ as she slaps them in the face.

Given the fact that the TSA’s own woeful background checks for their own employees allows rapists and pedophiles to get jobs as pat down agents, will you allow TSA workers to put their hands down the pants of your daughter or wife?

Demeaning, traumatic violations of people, including young children and toddlers, to accommodate an insane resistance to profiling and other common sense approaches to security...

This is what happens when self-deluded, wantonly ignorant electorates allow local, State and Federal governments and their civil services conveniently self-empowered to never be fired... to be taken over by a bunch of control freaks no better than the nastiest Communists in the old Soviet. All of these control measures are accelerated to make a gullible, weak and cowardly public more complacent.

It has to do with greedy individual little Lord Fontleroys, arrogant "leadership" that thinks it has the right to enslave the American public a little more each election cycle. There is a real terror threat from foreign elements, yet it could be confronted in many ways without these unConstitutional, abrasive and idiotic depravities dehumanizing our own people. When a person opts out of the body scan (their right), they are subjected to nasty, abusive, sometimes sexually invasive individuals intentionally manhandling them to convince the onlookers to willingly release their sense of dignity and personal strengths.

We can only wait to see if Americans are smart enough to get a majority of people in government everywhere that will not be the cynical bastards that have succeeded to power at all levels now, mostly Democrats.

Images have been stored and leaked out for the past year. The only reason this is making news now is due to the efforts of Infowars and the Drudge Report bringing it out into the main stream media.

The TSA and DHS is nothing more than a new milennia version of the SS. Established based on lies. Papers please?

Now the latest headline that has come out today is how the TSA is actually putting their hands down your pants. This is completely out of control.

I want to see more local sherrifs step up to the plate here. No other government agency has the power that your local sherriff does. The sherriff can throw the feds out. Completely. The law that established the TSA back in 2001 provided an opt out for local communities that an airport falls into the ability to provide their own security. Its time for more sherriffs to step up and take back control away from these disgusting thugs witha federal badge.

If these people groping and sexually abusing people were SS, they'd be better dressed and have a higher pay scale. These are scum Socialist street rabble hired by a regime intent on dehumanizing and weakening people, just as their juggernauts are invading primary schools to teach deviance to your children and shut down any resistance to their tyrannies.

The only answer may indeed be a new Gestapo with police authority for summary arrest and internment of anyone forcing their depraved Communist agendas on the populace. Fear may be the only way to control the Constitutionally illiterate freaks at all levels of government... No quarter; total personal responsibility with no excuses. With modern technology there would be a way to enforce sufficient oversight on a national police force so they wouldn't get out of control, or dominated by a political agenda. Yes, well dressed, severe authority without gobs of hardware hanging off them and with summary arrest power may be the answer.

Unfriendly skies are no match for El Al

By Vivienne Walt, USA TODAY
10/01/2001

JERUSALEM — "Has this luggage ever been used by someone else?" asked the El Al security official, a woman with a soft smile and long ponytail at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris before my departure to Tel Aviv last weekend. She eyed my weathered black bag, sitting on the floor next to a cubicle used for body searches and interrogations.

"My husband sometimes uses the suitcase," I said. "Where has he flown?" she pressed. "Once to the Persian Gulf, I think," I replied. That might have set off alarm bells in her mind, but the "selector," as screeners for Israel's national airline are known, had meanwhile found a bigger problem.

Examining each stamp in my passport, she froze at a page with Arabic lettering.

"Where's this for?" she asked. "Syria," I said — one of Israel's bitterest enemies. I hurriedly explained: "I'm a journalist. I went there for the president's funeral."

So it goes when traveling with the world's most security-conscious airline.

For Americans considering an end to free and easy flying in the USA, El Al provides a glimpse of what might lie ahead after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Having lived for decades with bombs and suicide attacks, Israel designed the industry's most impenetrable flight security more than 20 years ago. Officials say it is a stunning success. Despite several wars and endless conflict at home, El Al's sole hijacking was in 1968, before the system began.

Other catastrophes have been averted since. One bomb was found in 1979 in Zurich in the bag of a German passenger who looked nervous: He had thought he had been hired to smuggle diamonds. Another bomb was discovered a few years ago in the bag of a pregnant English passenger in London, placed there by her Palestinian lover, whose identity security officials had checked beforehand.

The recent suicide hijackings could never have occurred on El Al, officials say. "Those men's names would be on our list," says Shlomo Dror, a Defense Ministry spokesman who helped design El Al's system. Staff also easily would have noticed that the hijackers traveling first class did not look wealthy enough to pay the fare, he said.

For years, the airline industry has lauded El Al's security. Yet until now, no American company has considered copying the elaborate system, which cost El Al about $90 million last year. In 1987, Dror drafted a lengthy security plan for Pan Am Airlines, suggesting profiling passengers, opening bags and hiring professional security staff. The company rejected it as costly and intrusive. One year later, a bomb on a Pan Am flight to New York exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 270 people.

Ironically, after a year of heavy losses, El Al's bookings have soared since Sept. 11, with many passengers too fearful to fly other airlines.

Still, it is not clear that El Al's security can be duplicated. El Al's flight load — about 40 flights a day to about 51 destinations — is minuscule compared with any major American airline. The largest U.S. carrier, American Airlines, by comparison, had about 2,400 daily flights before Sept. 11. And until now, Americans would have resisted the lengthy time involved in the screening process, which can even result in flight delays until the questioning is complete.

Despite their current anxieties, Americans also might balk at El Al-style ethnic profiling. Staff scrutinize the passengers' names, dividing them into low-risk (Israeli or foreign Jews), medium-risk (non-Jewish foreigners) and extremely high-risk travelers (anyone with an Arabic name). These people automatically are taken into a room for body and baggage checks and lengthy interrogation. Single women also are considered high-risk, for fear they might be used by Palestinian lovers to carry bombs.

El Al uses "Pressurized Baggage Machines" to identify/detonate would be Bombs

Unfriendly skies are no match for El Al

By Vivienne Walt, USA TODAY
10/01/2001

To sift out who is who, screeners usually begin by asking passengers whether they understand any Hebrew, which most Jews do. Officials argue that such blatant discrimination is necessary.

"We don't ask the same questions to everyone; there's a surprise element so people can't prepare their answers," says El Al spokesman Nachman Klieman, adding that they don't reveal many of their security secrets publicly.

In fact, El Al's security kicks in long before the passenger will notice. Call an El Al office in any city to book a ticket, and your name will be checked against a computer list of terrorist suspects compiled by Interpol, the FBI, Shin Bet (Israel's intelligence service) and others.

My Paris travel agent insisted that the El Al flight on which I had reserved a seat did not exist. That is because El Al changes its schedule so frequently — to foil terrorist planning — that some agencies find it hard to keep up.

Once you board, up to five armed undercover agents will travel with you in strategic aisle seats, ready for attack. Furthermore, like many Israelis, cabin crews are former soldiers in the Israeli military who have received combat training. The cockpit door, of reinforced steel, is locked from the inside before passengers board and is opened only after everyone has disembarked at their destination. No matter what's going on in the rest of the plane, it is never opened during flight.

"Our pilots go to the bathroom," says Klieman, without confirming whether bathrooms are inside the cockpit.

Perhaps surprisingly, El Al's pilots are not armed. "I hear the American pilots want to have arms now, which I think is a bad idea," Tal says. "They could go outside the cockpit and hurt people. You cannot fly a plane and carry arms."

Even for regular El Al customers, the security process never feels comfortable, and the pre-flight probing is sure to make you feel somehow suspect. Watching closely for contradictions, the screener dissected my typically haphazard travel plan as though it were a lethal conspiracy.

"Why did you buy your ticket at the last minute?" the screener asked. "I changed my plans," I said.

"Why are you carrying wrapped boxes?" "I like to bring chocolates when people invite me over for dinner," I said.

"Who chose them in the store?" she asked. "I did," I replied.

By El Al's standards, my screening was light — only 10 minutes of questioning by two well-paid officials with full military training. It ended with one of them locking all the zippers on my suitcase with plastic ties. "Open these when you get to your hotel," she instructed before sending me to the check-in desk.

El Al's process is so time-consuming that passengers are required to arrive three hours before all flights. Passengers can be interrogated separately by three different screeners.

And questioners ask passengers where they purchased their tickets to compare their answers with ticket codes representing the purchase location.

A lot happens behind the scenes, too. Once luggage moves from the check-in desk to the conveyer belt, it is put in a pressurized box that detonates any explosive before the bag is loaded on the plane, Dror says. No unaccompanied bags are allowed. Those bags remain behind.

Bags transferring from another airline to El Al have to be checked through security again.

Security officers watch over cleaning crews while they service the aircraft in foreign airports.

After the intense security, once on board I felt some relief, knowing that I could drop off to sleep without a care while plainclothes agents with firearms sat nearby, wide awake in the dark.

Obviously if the shoe bomber wasn't checked, and all the little old ladies, old men, and thousands of others aren't checked this is crazy. They give these jobs to the slimiest perverts, and let them loose on the unsuspecting public. Republicans need to address this first, and foremost.

First, this article is about a Federal Marshall not storing the images properly at a COURTHOUSE.

Second, I could care less if my image is out there. My doctor, nurses and any other medical staff has seen and probed more than these images reveal.

If you don't like it, YOU sure wouldn't want to go to Israel or Northern Ireland or most of Europe.

Third, if you don't like it, you really don't have to fly. No one is making you.

Here's an idea. Stop flying for a while. If you don't HAVE to travel by airplane, don't. When the airlines start hurting THEY will start complaining.

In a world where technology abounds, to have people running their hands all over your body before you get on an airplane is insane. The full body scanner may be great but it doesn't show a bomb shoved up someone's ass. For that you'd need a colonoscopy. Could that be next on TSA's security measures?

And what about children? Who is feeling them up before they get on a plane? I don't think hard-core terrorists would have a problem sacrificing their own children, so I hope TSA is fondling every child that comes through the airport.

How much of this nonsense crap do we have to put up with? This country has lost its mind.

Here`s a bit of first hand info. I and my wife we are in our 60`s and American born and raised, 2 tours in Nam. Coming back from Cancun through Cincnatti Ohio. As we were told to take off our shoes and for me to remove my hat to walk through the metal detector I noticed one of them fellows with a turbin going through and the TSA never asked the guy to remove his turbin and he never even felt it. I raised the question with the TSA agent as to why I had to remove my hat but the guy was never asked to remove his turbin. The TSA guy told me they have orders not to as that would be stereotyping. I flipped these are the same people that are trying to kill us, but yet they get special treatment. The guy told me to go, I went through customs and when done the Customs agent told us we could re-lock our luggage which we did. When we got to our home airport, picked up our luggage we noticed our locks were cut off and our bags were a mess inside. Mind you Customs said we were good to go. This treatment was pure BS by the TSA revenge for my questioning their tactics on how Americans are treated.

To my knowledge nobody has ever tried blowing up a plane traveling around the States or leaving here to go overseas. All attemps are made by terrorists coming here from foreign countries. Few if any body scanners are found in Foreign Airports. This is more of H.G.Wells 1984 with Government takeover of every aspect of our lives.

The Muslims have already stated that no one is to body scan or patdown their women who wear those burkas or haij clothing. It will be interesting to see if they prevail with no search or scan and are allowed to fly while American women are demoralized and their privacy is invaded along with being disrespected through scanning and or patdown groping...... I believe that O`buma will give his muslim sisters and brothers a pass as has been evident so far......

Americans are continously penalized by our own supposed government for acts done to us by foreigners and illegals..........
